Support increase in CE hours for LVT's



I am writing in support of an increase in the number of required hours for Licensed Veterinary Technicians in Virginia.  We must keep the standards of our profession high and I would like to see Virginia among the highest in required hours for CE.  To obtain 8 or even 10 hours in a years time is easily available even through free courses online or in person.  Anyone who is devoted to their profession should spend at least this amount of time improving their skills each year.
